Incoherent style is the main complaint, that everything looks like someone raided a pile of stock model websites and shoved it all into one game.
The thing is, that's a very specific complaint. How many people are exposed to stock models? The average person would have no idea what they are. I've never seen stock models before. Yet everyone keeps parroting this complaint somehow.
To say that they don't match is also curious. Every area has specific models. They're all done up in a very pretty (IMO) style. The houses look very pretty IMO, as does the water tower etc. And they each have their specific locations, where they mostly match the other models.
The only 'ugly' areas are the places where you have a repeating background texture that's not really attractive. Some of the caves have a vivid background, but others are bland. Some rooms have ugly backgrounds that repeat themselves, and the futuristic inside background of hexes isn't so great either. In fact, I'd say there are more ugly repeated backgrounds than pretty ones. But I don't understand the complaint about the models, especially when the style they're rendered in is so nice (again, IMO). And let's not even get into the trees and bushes -- those are really nice, as are almost all the ground textures.
